  6. TSC meeting Report -
    • Published weekly to Co-Chairs list and in eNews. Any questions?
      • http://hl7tsc.org/wiki/index.php?title=TSC_Minutes_and_Agendas - Today’s call was about ongoing friction and making a decision about data types. Paul Knapp stated HL7 made a “breaking change” that was not backward compatible which has caused massive headaches for US V3 implementers who are primarily using CDA or SPL. Options are to fork to make two roads possible, craft a solution without further breakage and how to handle. Of the options outlined, additional information was requested. Brian asked how to get a copy of Loyd’s paper discussed on the; it is attached to the TSC minutes of the 8/20 call.
      • Tooling PSS for HL7 Tooling Challenge is out for eVote this week.
  7. New Business -
    • Next call - 9/3 is US Holiday; call will be cancelled since there are no urgent agenda items
    • Baltimore WGM Agenda - Will have normal agenda structure. Email Patrick/Freida if you have project scope statements that will need to be approved. IFC has requested agenda item, e.g. specifically how to support new countries that don’t have affiliate; Africa is current focus. John mentioned database to track people that will be traveling to Africa, however, HL7 representatives need to be ambassador for HL7 with specific skill set, not selling a product, etc. Send new agenda items to Patrick, Freida, and incoming Co-Chair Andy. Patrick will talk to Andy separately about the TSC meeting September 8.
    • Board Liaison reports – don’t need to be approved by the Steering Division but send to T3SD Co-Chairs (or list) and please send to Karen Van Hentenryck by August 31.
